be kind, rewind

star printed dress - thrifted | striped oversized cardigan - thrifted | black leggings - metro | lace-up booties - sm department store (gifted from harry) | stacks of bangles - gifted and carbon finds | dog tag - custom
fox ring - bangkok find | brown sunnies - carbon find

for regular readers, you might find this dress and cardigan familiar. i do have this insane rule of not repeating what i wear but only for the same month. as much as possible, i'd like to keep my outfits different when i can. for me, style is not about buying new clothes to wear everyday. here are the different times i've worn the items on this outfit:

as we are currently saving up for our wedding, i can't allow myself to get tempted by new retail buys. i think this is absurd but Harry says i have way too many clothes and even asked me if i have attempted to count them. i didn't answer him, of course, but i know that i should stop buying more and it's just a small sacrifice for me to finally wear that big yet flowy and white bohemian wedding dress that i've always dreamed of.

so, expect more outfit posts with items recycled from previous outfits. ♥

ps. thanks to the readers who left comments on my last post. i am glad to be back and it's definitely heart-warming to know i've been missed. will get back to your comments soon! mwah! ♥

stripes & hearts

chambray top: thrifted | printed cotton maxi dress: shop yapi | striped ballet flats: primal rave wholesale | blue cutout belt: shop yapi | camel quilted bucket bag: primal rave wholesale | leopard ring: carbon find | coral ring: bangkok find | enamel bangles: hongkong finds | red wooden bangles: a gift from WAGW | tangerine printed bangle: DIY by sister

two and a half months can pass by really quick, huh? i didn't even realize i've been gone that long until i decided to go back to blogging. let me tell you though, posing for my come back post was quite embarrassing. i didn't know whether to smile or just act cool. so pardon the weird face.

before i proceed with telling you all about what has happened to me in the last two months, i feel i need to explain why i decided to take a break in the first place. on my last few posts, i've been feeling off and no longer passionate about continuing my blog. it confused me because blogging used to be an alternate world that i can immerse myself in and i did it for me. a few months before i took the break though, blogging became a chore. it became overrated. so i wanted to take a step back before i ruin my blogging experience altogether.

so, if anyone is curious, a lot has definitely happened to me in the last two and a half months.
♥ my little sister got back from aussie for her month long school break.
♥ i resigned as marketing executive from my sister's company to start doing homebased jobs.
♥ i oversaw our wholesale clothing business and spent 90% of my days at home.
♥ then i realized i was being a bum (and spending my life savings) that i needed to get a stable job.
♥ surprise: i went back to the BPO industry. (phew! i know, right? i'll tell you more about that on another post.)
♥ i celebrated my 27th birthday!
♥ and the best part: harry and i got engaged! he proposed on my birthday. it's the best birthday gift ever!
